Misery Is A Butterfly

My favorite "surprise" album of the year is definitely Misery Is A Butterfly by Blonde Redhead.

To get you through your Thursday, here's a mini mix CD from the band:
Misery Is A Butterfly (mp3), from Misery Is A Butterfly
Four Damaged Lemons (Third Eye Foundation remix) (mp3), from I Poo Poo On Your Juju
In Particular (mp3), from Melody Of Certain Damaged Lemons
Missile ++ (mp3), from In An Expression Of The Inexpressible

2001-07-21, Louisville (mp3)

"four damaged lemons" is also available on the band's ep melodie citronique, along with a french version of "in particular" and an italian version of "hated because of great qualities". you should check it out if you haven't already. totally worth every penny. also, have you checked out the deerhoof? similar but different.

i definitely prefer the french version of "in particular" - and the original's pretty darned good.

Funny you should mention Deerhoof, they're one of my favorite bands and I just heard their new Milk Man album last week, A friend of mine said it sounded like "Deerhoof plus Blonde Redhead," and he was right!

its almost like they picked up the blonde redhead act that blonde redhead appears now appears to have shed. "giga dance" is on my heavy iPod rotation right now. they're playling atlanta on april 19th at this tiny club [just like they did last year] and i can't freeking wait!
